If you export sales technology as part of your bidding/quoting process, you may be able to utilize the Commerce Department’s Export Administration Regulations’ license exception “Technology and Software Unrestricted (TSU)”. License Exception TSU [§740.13(b)] allows for the export of Commerce jurisdiction technology that is typically part of a quote/bid/offer, per customary business practice. This technology cannot disclose detailed design, manufacture, or production technology; nor can it disclose how to reproduce the item represented nor the technology itself.  While this license exception may allow the export of the technology to solicit business, it does not guarantee that a license will be approved for the business transaction itself (export of the hardware) and recommends that exporters provides for this in their contracts.
